Summer is just around the corner, so be ahead of the game by being in the know about what’s next! There are a few different avenues to take depending on your personal style, although bright colors are appearing to dominate. We’ll be seeing a lot of throwbacks to the 80s with loud colors in patterns ranging from checkered to stripes, even polka-dots. We have a great collection of acrylic beads in a variety of colors that would work great in creating your colorful summer jewelry. Summer seems to be the time to experiment.

The other big trend for summer is a natural, earthy look. Materials like wood and shell are growing in popularity, and will spill into the summer season. Wood beads, shells, and gemstones are the right choices!  The idea is to imitate elements found in nature—finding things without structure. Chunky stones are your best bet. Take a look at our collection of gemstones, shell beads and wood components to put together your own fashion trend. Below are a few ideas from the learning center to help you get inspired!

    We absolutely agree! We’re seeing lots of bright colors and natural styles. We just signed Todd Reed who has some of the best raw cut jewels. We also love Sydney Evan’s take on the natural look. These beaded bracelets are a perfect example! http://on.fb.me/p8Nwex PLUS they’re great for stacking, another trend we’re loving this summer!!!
